Using Computers to Teach About Everything

K8If your kids aren’t up to 21-st century computer literacy skills, K to the 8th Power can get them up to speed without missing out on important curriculum items. With more than 600 online courses, K to the 8th Power has a wide range of assessment and teaching resources for students, teachers and administrators. The key is that it rather than teaching how to use computers in a vacuum, the system uses computers literacy as a doorway into traditional scholastic achievement. For example, K to the 8th Power uses a lesson on Web browsers to show how to look for a job and PowerPoint to teach about adjectives. Each online class comes with a lesson plan that includes how to assess performance indicators as well as an outline of each grade’s curriculum. The site includes a technology literacy test.
